25mm Roman Leves

These figures represent Roman leves, poor men whom the state could only require to provide a few javelins as equipment, though I have added small shields to several of them to represent those with marginally greater means. They were employed as skirmishers in front of the light infantry units, and would retreat behind their better armored countrymen after throwing their weapons.

The manufacturer is Crusader, with small shields from 1st Corps.
